Man Accused of Harassing KSDK Employees: "Enjoy the Last Remaining Moments of Life"

Thomas Duroso, alleged KSDK harasser.
Update below: We here at Daily RFT are no strangers to very angry readers commenting on our articles and Facebook page expressing outrage, hate, disgust, etc. But generally they don't show up in person to our office, demand to speak with us and threaten to hurt us -- and tell us we may soon face death.

But this appears to be the case with Thomas Duroso, 32, who allegedly has some serious gripes with KSDK (Channel 5) and decided to repeatedly harass several employees in a series of obscene Facebook messages -- and then, last week, in person.

One threat said "enjoy the last remaining moments of life," according to a probable-cause statement, on view below. In addition to this alleged harassment, Duroso also apparently spends a lot of time posting strange rants on his own Facebook page and filming bizarre videos on YouTube.

First, the official accusations.

The probable-cause statement from the Circuit Attorney's Office says that Duroso is facing six counts of misdemeanor harassment charges that date back to November of 2012.

He allegedly began contacting KSDK employees last fall. The statement says:

Beginning in November 2012, the defendant began contacting many KSDK employees. The defendant would often send Facebook messages to the employees, however the defendant has also called KSDK employees and showed up on the KSDK premises. In these phone calls, voicemails and Facebook messages, the defendant used vulgar and threatening language and obscenities. He would also threaten harm against the employees.

The charges, first reported yesterday by the Post-Dispatch, list five victims at the company.

He sent one a message last year, "calling [an employee] an obscene name and threatening him using vulgar language."

In addition to the "enjoy the last remaining moments of life" threat, Duroso allegedly sent a Facebook message to another employee "threatening harm to her and other
individuals."

Continue for more details on his accusations, including his visit to KSDK headquarters.

Looking at his face makes it funny. What he said to them and then showing up to the station makes it scary. IF he showed up to the station looking like this that would have been scary and funny at the same time!

I wish punches to the face was an acceptable immediate, legal form of punishment for stupidity.

I love that he was arrested wearing the same shirt as his profile picture, but most importantly 

I love that he is one of those ALL CAPS TYPING lunatics. The rants are insane - he is definitely a person that needs to be supervised.
